Even though she wasn't fully conscious, Arshelly could hear the voice of her beloved father.
Arshelly spoke to Kang Chul-In with a weak voice.
Kang Chul-In answered.
“I’m here. Your dad is here. So…”
Kang Chul-In hopped off the Altaica.
Saying this, Kang Chul-In’s eyes were full of fatherly love.
“D-Don’t tell me…”
When he saw this, Sheville Polansky---
Seemed liked he was about to fall over on the spot from shock.
“T-That little b*tch... w-was the daughter of… O-Overlord Kang Chul-In…?!”
This wasn't even close to just a small mistake, so it was as if Sheville had stepped into a field of explosive mines.
The daughter of Overlord Kang Chul-In?
He had kidnapped the daughter of the man that even Baruk Al-Yusuf had to kneel to?
And he was planning on killing her before turning her into his mannequin?
T-This can’t be… No… No… NOOOO!!!
Sheville wanted to bite his tongue and die.
“This… won’t happen again.”
Without taking so much as a glance at Sheville, Kang Chul-In promised.
“I… believe you, father…”
Arshelly spoke, her voice trembling.
Her voice resembled that of a dying person's.
When he heard it, Kang Chul-In’s heart felt like it was being torn apart.
“I-I love you, father…”
“Dad… Please save the ones trapped there too…”
Arshelly pointed at the other children stuck inside the glass containers.
Kang Chul-In answered.
The Bittermoon territory would soon be taken over by Baruk Al-Yusuf anyway, and he wouldn’t kill those children since he followed the Islamic law.
“Yes, father. I can’t anymore... my eyes…”
“It’s okay, you can go ahead and close them.”
Grabbing Arshelly, Kang Chul-In patted her on the back.
“Don’t worry. What is there to worry about when dad is here?”
“When you wake up, we’ll both be in Laputa.”
“Yes, father… I love…”
While Arshelly was speaking,
Her eyelids shut closed, and her head drooped down.
With Kang Chul-In here, Arshelly was finally able to fall asleep in peace.
At last, Kang Chul-In didn’t feel the same emptiness he had felt before.
Was family such an important thing…?
Kang Chul-In realized just how important Arshelly was to him now.
Son! Come and visit home more often!
His mother's, Park Sun-Ja’s, voice echoed in his head.
He couldn’t understand why he had ignored his mother in his past life, and instead only focused on waging war.
You, and mother.
Kang Chul-In vowed.
I won’t let any harm come to you.
While Kang Chul-In was speaking to Arshelly, Sheville Polansky started to tiptoe towards the exit.
Of course, the problem was that Arshelly and Kang Chul-In weren’t the only ones in the room.
The Altaica growled towards him, as if warning him.
Afraid of the giant beast, Sheville stopped moving.
The Altaica showed off its fangs, which were still dripping with flesh blood. It also started to circle around him, intensifying his fright.
This damned beast!
Even though Sheville's eyes reddened from rage, there was nothing he could do.
The Altaica snorted, ignoring him.
There was no way that the Sheville's ability would work against the Altaica, since it didn’t even know the ‘M’ in 'magic'.
“Where do you think you're going?”
From behind him, Sheville heard the voice of the grim reaper.
“You have to pay the price now.”
“I-I’m sorry…! Please have mercy…”
Sheville didn’t dare to turn around. He was too afraid to look at Kang Chul-In’s face.
Ah, I’m so screwed.
There was no way he could win against Kang Chul-In since he didn’t use magic. The only choice was to…
Sheville turned his body around and kneeled directly in front of Kang Chul-In.
He then started to smash his own forehead against the ground to apologize.
It was a quick apology, given in order to live.
“I won’t... won’t ever do this again! Also, I didn’t know… I really didn’t know that she was the daughter of the Overlord Kang Chul-In! I wouldn’t have kidnapped her if I knew! Please believe me…!”
Half of what he said was true, and half was a lie.
When he said he wouldn’t do this again he was just lying, in order to avoid death. Of course, the fact that he wouldn’t have dared to touch Arshelly was true.
“I-If you let me… Kuhuk!”
Sheville choked due Kang Chul-In’s hand grabbing his throat.
“You should already know---”
“W-What do you mean…?”
“That I won’t kill you easily.”
While Kang Chul-In was speaking, a white light flashed,
And Sheville started to charge towards Kang Chul-In.
It was a sneak attack.
He had thrown a single-use item that should have blocked Kang Chul-In’s sight, before charging towards him.
Kang Chul-In grabbed onto Polansky’s right arm, which held a dagger.
“Is this it?”
Kang Chul-In laughed.
“Since I don't have much time, let’s begin.”
“I will show you a whole new world of pain.”
A terrifying scream filled the secret chamber of the Bittermoon territory.
Whilst Kang Chul-In was torturing Sheville Polansky, the Anatolian army was outside conquering the castle walls of the Bittermoon territory.
Unlike before, the soldiers of the Bittermoon territory fell like leaves. The morale they had shown an hour ago was long gone.
Lee Gong-Myung spoke.
“Can you lend this one 2000 troops?”
“Yes, Great Khalifa.”
“What’s the reason?”
“In order to block their escape route.”
“Hm… Very well.”
“Thank you, great Khalifa.”
Lee Gong-Myung bowed.
“Oh, and when should I send out my great warriors?”
“I think now is the right time.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes, great Khalifa. The Bittermoon territory is a mess right now. Since Kang Chul-In can run during the chaos, we should send out your great warriors and have them hunt Kang Chul-In down.”
Baruk Al-Yusuf nodded.
Baruk Al-Yusuf was confident.
50 elite guards of Anatolia, 50 assassins, and 100 soldiers. With this 200 man elite squad, he was confident in being able to catch Kang Chul-In.
“Just you wait! I will capture you alive, and rip you to shreds!”
Baruk Al-Yusuf spoke, his eyes glittering with madness.
